Andy & Melinda on Day Two. No, they hadn't had too much to drink. They just were overwhelmed by how bright the flash was!

Andy & Melinda on Day Two. No, they hadn’t had too much to drink. They just were overwhelmed by how bright the flash was!

As administrators/co-founders of the Puget Sound Community School, we, Melinda & Andy, try to do something special when spring break rolls around each year.

This has included a couple of trips to Mexico, memorable trips to La Jolla and Palm Springs, staying with family outside of San Francisco, and a trip to Portland. In fact, it was in Mexico in 2008 that we first conceived of what became our family’s 2010-11 sabbatical to France, and it was during spring break in San Francisco in 2010 that we got our French visas.

In 2014, to save money for a future trip, we stayed home, a staycation! For fun, we chose a different restaurant in Seattle each day and experienced that restaurant’s happy hour. This blog is a record of these five days.
